    My dear brothers we share a bond that is like no other
    And it goes beyond the connection of a shared mother
    For what is between us is a special kind of closeness
    For in you I can see the means of my completeness

    So my brother if the need ever arises I’ll carry you
    For I definitely need you to help me make it through
    I won’t ever look down on you except to pick you up
    For without you near I am like a half empty/full cup

    For we are strong men with our own variations
    Our strengths cover each others imperfections
    So I’ll always lead each of your support teams
    For ya’ll keep me standing on life’s balance beam

    If you were to journey into the inner dimensions of me
    A desire to be what Martin dreamed is what’d you see
    For I believe that we are more than capable of the best
    For we have each other to support us through any test

    If need be I’ll pull you up by your bootstraps like Booker
    For my desire is that we all be more than a mere onlooker
    For us to be part of the talent tenth Dubois spoke about
    And through faith we’ll be there someday without a doubt

    My brother the responsibility of us resides heavily upon me
    And no matter what comes we're going to make it, you'll see

    Wow! We are definitely our brothers keeper! Somewhere along the way we got away from that, self-absorbed and totally focused on "me".

    Thank you for the reminder of where our focus should be!

    And that spelled Unity with a capital U. This can't be spoken about enough, and the warmth of your words permeated the page.
